The number of tutors will vary depending on group size and the aim will be one tutor to every six participants. There will be small group learning and exercises, as well as time in the larger group. Sessions will be tailored to the needs of those attending.
Skills covered include reflecting summarising, paraphrasing, creative interventions and challenging while embracing Rogers’ core conditions of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. The course will have an emphasis on the practical; learning skills to take away and use.
